DeAfrica receives funding from the New Zealand Embassy of Ethiopia to train women entrepreneurs across Africa. In October 2022, DeAfrica received a grant from the New Zealand Embassy of Ethiopia to partner with Africa’s Leading Ladies to educate women entrepreneurs across Africa. Africa’s Leading Ladies is a Facebook Group with 407,000 women entrepreneurs. In this two-year program, DeAfrica will provide 4 online business courses including project management, business strategy, and design thinking. Courses will be supported by mentors who will engage the community through Facebook and WhatsApp. In addition, the community has access to written business case studies and six Facebook Live events showcasing women entrepreneurs, successful women owned businesses, and skills to start and grow a business. A strong sense of community will be a foundational component to this initiative.
